UNIVERSITI Malaysia Sabah’s (UMS) School of Arts Studies has received a RM800,000 creative industry grant from the Information, Communications and Culture Ministry.

The school’s lecturer Dr Zairul Anuar Md Dawam said the grant was based on a previous memorandum signed with local film production company North Borneo Media Sdn Bhd, to produce Sabah’s first 3D animation project.

He said an animation studio had been set up to function as a research and innovation centre that would train UMS students and former students in commercial animation and creative entrepreneurship.

“The studio has already produced a 2D animation series pilot titled Antenom, which was funded through a Fundamental Research Grant Scheme secured by the school.”

Dr Zairul Anuar said that through research, the school had transformed Sabah’s folk tales into animation as a unity medium and to instill patriotism in the students. — Bernama
